Description

Suspicious deaths are not usually the concern of PC Peter Grant or the Folly, even when they happen at an exclusive party in one of the most expensive apartment blocks in London. But Lady Ty's daughter was there, and Peter owes Lady Ty a favour.

Plunged into the alien world of the super-rich, where the basements are bigger than the house and dangerous, arcane items are bought and sold on the open market, a sensible young copper would keep his head down and his nose clean. But this is Peter Grant we're talking about.

He's been given an unparalleled opportunity to alienate old friends and create new enemies at the point where the world of magic and that of privilege intersect. Assuming he survives the week....

Read by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith.

Features an audio-exclusive interview with Ben Aaronovitch and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith.

Best Narration that I have heard for an Audiobook.

The Narrator’s voice and way of reading fit my picture of the main character perfectly. His reading of the story is so smooth, well paced, and well acted that I could completely fall into the story while listening.

If you are a fan then you know

Would you consider the audio edition of The Hanging Tree to be better than the print version?

I love Kobna Holbrook-Smith and I think he embodies all of the series so I don't read the print version

What other book might you compare The Hanging Tree to and why?

Sort of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Have you listened to any of Kobna Holdbrook-Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He is fantastic

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Loved it but I love the series

Any additional comments?

Get it read it listen to it and if you haven't started the series I'm envious I wish I hadn't read/listened to it because then I could do it again

I am the most unlikely person to become such a fan

Up front I must confess anything (book, film, audio) with supernatural and/or magic theme has been dismissed by me as unsuitable adult fare. sure, take nephews or nieces to Harry Potter, but thats it. I'm more Nelson de Mille, Gerald Seymour, Barry Eisler - that kind of thing. I got a freebie short about a library and, stuck in Friday night traffic, gave it a go. well, I'm on book 6 or 7 or something now. I have to say the choice of voice actor is huge in this- his performance has made PC Grant feel real and someone youd crack a beer with and watch the rugby. The series have all been great; Ive enjoyed some others, but none have disappointed. Give them a go, but dont be surprised if you end up with all in the series. You have been warned

Always expect the best from Ben Aaronovitch and again... Not disappointed. Had me hanging on every word. Great suspense and action.

Read in Order, whatever you do!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I wouldn't recommend this one directly, but the series? Most DEFINITELY. It's quirky, clever and has so many laugh out loud moments ,this is my most looked forward to series. This book HAS to be read in order. I hadn't caught up on the story before starting in on this one, and I was a little lost with the constant referring to past events. It's a good story regardless, but one of my least favourite of the series

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I was a little lost with the referring to past books. There needed to be a little more context given to past events. Otherwise, it was a good book. The story felt a bit disjointed, and didn't have a clear engaging story line that caught me, but it wasn't bad or boring at all.

What does Kobna Holdbrook-Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He has an unreal talent to switch between characters and accents. He is probably my favourite narrator, along side Sebastian York - who has the sexiest voice ALIVE

Any additional comments?

This is such a fun quirky series. Start at the beginning, and listen to it. The narration brings it alive in a way you wouldn't believe. The only thing that set this back from 5 stars for me, was the storyline not being "bowl me over amazing" like the others I've read, but still, decent.

Good story and praise to the auther

Good story, fun narrating with good use of London slang and dialects
Praise to the author for gathering threads from earlier books, but without closing them all.
He also did a good job of avoid powercreep, what have become stronger in this story is not the protagonist, but police organization behind him (it opens also up for new problems).

Lovely entertainment :]

Hat Ihnen Kobna Holdbrook-Smith an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?

I was amazed by all the different accents Holdbrook-Smith managed to realize.
For me - as a non-native English speaker - it would have been quite hard to imagine such hilarious accents and dialects myself.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

It might make sense to listen to the previous Peter Grand stories before, because I was quite surprised, when some elements came up and needed some time to completely understand everything.

Das beste Buch der Reihe

Die Rivers-of-London-Reihe ist sicher das beste, was es an intelligenten, humorvollen Fantasy-Krimis gerade auf dem Markt gibt. Der übliche kluge Witz begenet einem auch in diesem Hörbuch, der Sprecher ist phanomenal wie immer - dieses Buch sollte man unbedingt auf englisch hören. Die deutsche Übersetzung ist leider eher mäßig und tatsächlich um einige Witze gekürzt. Das beste am Hanging Tree: Es ist das spannendste Buch der Reihe! Absolut hörenswert!

Aaronovitch: Hanging Tree

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an The Hanging Tree gefallen?

Aaronovitch: Hanging Tree
Im 6. Band der Peter-Grant-Reihe, Der Galgen von Tyburn, gibt es ein Wiedersehen mit vielen alten Bekannten. Es bleibt nicht aus, dass Peter wieder diverse Gebäude in Schutt und Asche legt.
Es gibt auch ernsthafte Themen, die hier angestossen werden, so z.B. wie kann ein Sterblicher mit einer Göttin leben und sogar Kinder haben?
Die Lesungen aus der Reihe sind spannend genug, um sie auch öfter noch anzuhören - auch wenn die englische Lesung gut verständlich ist. Ich liebe die Stimme von Kobna Holdbrook-Smith und er schaut sowieso aus wie das Alter Ego von Peter. .

Ben, du kannst uns doch so nicht hängen lassen

Würden Sie The Hanging Tree noch mal anhören? Warum?

OH da gibt es viele Gründe. Ich liebe es wie Kobna Holbrook-Smith die unterschiedlichen Dialekte liest .. die Handlung in der ich immer wieder neue (wenn auch manchmal unstimmige Details) Details finde.

Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

Das wir bis fast - aber eben nur fast - alles über den Mann ohne Gesicht erfahren. Wann kommt der nächste Teil ?

Welche Figur hat Kobna Holdbrook-Smith Ihrer Meinung nach am besten interpretiert?

Ganz klar Lady Thy und Nightingale.

Wenn Sie dieses Hörbuch verfilmen könnten wie würde der Slogan dazu lauten?

the hidden London you don't know about

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Man muss auf jeden Fall die ganze Reihe gehört haben - sonst ist man verloren.

Another great Peter Grant Story

Very much liked how the story has developed over the books. This one was definitely awesome!
